NOON INTERVIEW: Yellowstone Art Trail

By  | 

CADOTT, Wis. (WEAU)— The 6th Annual Yellowstone Art Trail runs September 6 & 7.
News Release:
The Sixth Annual Yellowstone Art Trail is a free self guided art tour consisting of 32 local artists displaying and selling artwork in their studios and participating businesses. We are fortunate to have the historical Yellowstone Trail, the transcontinental auto route that went right through these communities back in 1915-1930, winding its way through our towns (currently County Highway X), creating the route for the Yellowstone “Art” Trail. The art trail includes Cadott, Boyd and the eastern Lake Wissota area of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin and is set for Friday & Saturday, September 6th & 7th, 2019 from 9-5 both days.
Many dedicated artists call this area of Chippewa County their home, with its beautiful backdrop of rivers and lakes, parks and gardens, country farmland and welcoming neighborhoods. The Yellowstone Art Trail features artwork for all ages; men and women alike. It showcases the fine art and skills of wood craftsmen, metal sculptors, stained glass artists, plus handmade pottery, fiber art, fine art drawings and paintings, handmade jewelry and much more. The artwork is original and handmade and many of the artists give demonstrations, educating the public on their craft. Several of them are active in the arts within the local community, working with adults and youth alike with many projects.
There are ten art stops included on the trail, historical places of interest, specialty shops and area restaurants. Hosting several guest artists are the ZCBJ Bohemian Lodge, the Anson Methodist Church, Cadott Area Historical Society, the English Lutheran Church of Bateman and the Institute of St. Joseph/Nazareth Studio in Boyd. There will be tours of the historical Bohemian Lodge and the Cadott Area Historical Society buildings. In addition to that, five area art studios are also on the trail.
Brochures with maps are available identifying the artists and their unique artwork. You can pick one up at area businesses in August, from the artists, or view it on our website.
Each artist will be giving away one of their creations, so make sure to enter your name in a drawing at each location. Just grab a few friends, hop in your car and follow the bright yellow signs and sunflowers dotting the trail! We welcome you to experience the arts in our area.
